LaVine out for season with torn ACL

Minnesota Timberwolves guard Zach LaVine tore his left ACL on Friday and is out for the rest of the NBA season.

The high-flying guard injured his left knee during his team's 116-108 loss to the Detroit Pistons.

An MRI on Saturday revealed a torn ACL in LaVine's knee.

According to a Timberwolves media release, LaVine will require surgery and will miss the rest of the season.

A two-time winner of the NBA's Slam Dunk competition, LaVine was having his best season of his three-year career, averaging 18.9 points, 3.4 rebounds and 3.0 assists per game.
